Navigation System

Sorry if there is a long standing thread about the Nav in general.

I was in Jersey over the weekend, and a house that has been around for a long time, the Nav didn't lead me to it. It was off by 2 miles, despite trying two town possibilities in the Nav.

Ford should add a zip code option to the Nav.

In addition, how do you know when you can update the maps? Is it through the Sync update or something else?

Hi Mike,

If you'd like, I can see if this happens on our test module; just shoot me the address in a private message and I'll plug it in. Also, you can enter the zip code instead of city for the following searches:

City Center
Intersection
Street address

When you go to any of those options, press CITY to change it to ZIP CODE. :)

I did not know you can change city to zip code, so that really helps!

Let me try that and see (I remember the cross streets to get there) if that solves it. For what it's worth, I bounced the address straight from my iPhone using the Sync app.

Using SYNC Destinations verse manually inputting the address into navigation shouldn't make a difference. Did you try changing to zip code yet? I'm curious to see if that helped. Let me know. :)

How do you know when you should update the mapping software for the nav?

Generally, map updates are released once a year. The SD cards can be purchased via your dealership, but we do plan on having them available on our suppliers website in the future. You can go here to sign up for emails telling you when the latest update is ready:

http://www.navigation.com/is-bin/INT...ContactUs-View

Select the subject "Request Future Map Information." If you are seeing new places around your home that are not on your current map, you can then update if a newer version is available, or you don't have to. It all depends on your preference, and how many changes have taken place in your area.
